    Well, it's a little known fact that Larry watches, on average, 3 fantasy movies per week.

    However, Maddie actually has seen certain fantasy movies many more times than Larry has.

      Ryan Hupferposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Hmmm, looks like I just might not like you? What's up with that?

      Or, maybe Maddie told me to stay far, far away from you? Nah, she's way too nice.

      Ok, to tell you the truth I'm not totally sure about the messages that you're referring to(resend?)  and I swear I'm doing my best to keep up with your FUNKYfresh forum replies and UBERhawt Hub posts...I'll catch up sometime.

      But in the meantime, here's a hug to make you feel better. smile

    Ahh the power of hugs.  I re-sent it

    it was about the overload of email alerts in my inbox.

    When are you guys gonna fly me in to SF and hire me full-time.   

    Seems stupid not to.

    Plus then I can get all my hugs in person.   I bet Maddie hugs are ooey gooey!

          I want to duel too!  Especially where hockey sticks are involved.  Hockey is the only sport I can really get excited about.  I played field hockey myself.  Not enough ice in California.

    After being away from city by the bay since Apriln2005, I got to go back (Berkeley) for two weeks!!!! Except for the fog and cool weather I didn't get to have any fun though, boo hoo, helping my ill sister take care of herself and her kids. But sure thought a couple of times about how close I was to the hubpages team!!! Do I get any brownie points for that?

    1. Ryan Hupfer profile image66
      Ryan Hupferposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      mmmmm...brownies.

      Thanks, blondie - you just reminded me that it's time to go grab some lunch.

      Subway, here I come! smile

      I was born and raised (for the most part) in Berkeley!  I'm picturing you in all my usual haunts... Hang out on Telegraph at all?  You probably walked right by the tattoo shop where I had all my ink done.

    I was born in the Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Berkeley!

    1. Maddie Ruud profile image78
      Maddie Ruudposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      I was born at Kaiser, too!!!  It's technically in Oakland, but it's right on the border wink  Are you ever coming back to the Bay, if only to eat brownies with the HubPages team???

      1. Stacie Naczelnik profile image73
        Stacie Naczelnikposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        I'm jumping into the party, but I wasn't born in Berkeley or Oakland.  I was born in San Pablo, which isn't far.  Born and raised a Contra Costa County girl.

        I am super excited about moving back to California next summer...probably San Francisco.  I moved away in 1999, coming back in 2009.

  20. gamergirl profile image59
    gamergirlposted 9 years ago

    Well, I could always just save up my Adsense checks for a ticket to see you folks.  I totally mean it, I haven't seen that area since I was about eight years old, so it's about time I think.

    Though, I'm almost scared - Paul Deeds, he's so serious looking! LOL

  21. DJ Funktual profile image78
    DJ Funktualposted 9 years ago

    Haven't been to SF since the summer before senoir year in HS.   1988 -Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz, but I'll bet Maddie hugs and (funky) brownies are much cooler.  If I ever get rich, I'm gonna walk in to HubPages unannounced with a BIG OLE BOOMBOX on my shoulder!
